An Illuminated Transience

An Illuminated Transience

Composing An Illuminated Transience was a wonderful journey into light, color, and perception. Each movement opens a small window from which we can see a poet, a painter and a scientist observe, ruminate on, create and experiment with light. Ultimately, the piece is a celebration of curiosity, passion and love of learning.

Commissioned and premiered by Cantori, Robert Cowles, Director
Hobart and William Smith Colleges, Geneva, New York.
